Mantra Zanzibar

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved staying at the Mantra Zanzibar. Our booking was upgraded upon arrival which was a wonderful nice surprise. We now had a large courtyard with BBQ and our own private outdoor spa (as well as an indoor one). The beds were comfy, and I'm glad the 2nd bedroom for our 12 yo son and 15 yo daughter were fairly spread out. Sometimes the 2nd bedroom can be a real squeeze, but not this one. The kitchen was well appointed and the lounge was very comfy. We were on level 2, so could see the ocean through the tree tops. It was lovely sitting on the balcony listening to the waves. The hotel pool was literally 3 metres from our back door which was great. Was a little worried about the noise at first, but it turned out being a non-issue. In fact we couldn't hear any street noise at all from our apartment. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly and the cleaning staff were all polite and friendly. Parking was a breeze (parked underneath) and easy to access. One of the best things about staying here was the location. Everything right at our doorstep. Including ATM's, Coles within easy walking distance, many restaurants and cafes (must try Crumbed or Naked right below Zanzibar) and the main attraction - the beach! A little disappointed that free wifi is not included, we did pay, but it was't that great. Also, the lift buttons are very hard to read. Especially the fine print ie Level 1 is where you need to go to go out onto the Esplanade and the beach. Overall our stay was fantastic and it was very sad to leave.

Nice apartments with great views on the ocean front. Balconies are not very private but rooms are great. Staff friendly and support when anything breaks was excellent. Our Air Conditioning and DVD player were not working but they got them fixed in quick order.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were outstanding, We have stayed with you before and we were very happy to visit Zanzibar again. Helpful staff . Hopefully we can come again, when time permits us to do so

really enjoyed the location - view of the ocean and proximity to shops and cafes. our room was nicely furnished we were impressed with the kitchen and what was supplied for our use. the staff we had contact with were friendly and helpful.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment and it was very spacious. Much bigger than expected! Great view from our balcony and location was very handy. Close to shops and the beach. Staff were friendly. Would definitely stay again!

The Mantra Zanzibar was the perfect location for our beachside holiday with a spectacular ocean view from our apartment. Breakfast on the sunny balcony was a perfect way to start the day. We'll be back again.

First 'hotel' holiday for our young family. From booking right through to departure nothing was a problem. All staff were friendly and easy to deal with. The room was a great size and well appointed. The views were amazing. Daddy and Miss 4 loved the heated pool and mummy and Miss almost 2 loved the spa. Easy walking distance (even for kids) to shops, cafes, playground etc. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break.

I have stayed here many times, the location of the Zanzibar is fantastic. We definitely be staying here again. Reception staff wonderful and very helpful. Room were clean and tidy. View were fantastic.

From the moment we arrived we thought WOW lovely place, the reception staff made us come down to reality with the blunt and not helping. Rooms were very clean and presentable. Beds need to be upgrade at some point as they are very hard and small. Approached the front desk again about local attractions and she told me she wouldn't help as she was completing end of month and just go out and look for yourselves. We live in Byron Bay and thought I would rather spend my time down there.

fabulous location overlooking the water, not noisy at all. Great accessories in the kitchen and overall state of the apartment was very private and clean. Each bedroom was private and the shower was very good in the main bathroom.
